    Waterview tunnel drone fly-through.

    Link sent to me by a mate that's working on the tunnel. Cool little video. Had no idea it was so long!

    The tunnel is 2.4km, which is just shy of the harbour bridge in length, and the bridge's 2.8km is measured from where it touches down, not the water gap.

    And just in case you get any silly ideas about flying a drone to film your neighbor sunbathing the fun police will stop you

    Hate to burst the bubble but it's drone footage at the beginning and end only, the rest is the camera attached to the front of the vehicle driving through the tunnel

    But still, nicely done and shows how long the tunnel is, and how much driving time will be saved once it's up and running.

    Thats what I though but could not see it land on a vehicle. Then thought that it would be edited that way

    Fingers crossed douchebags can drive through it without shitting themselves and slamming on the brakes randomly like they do with the vic park tunnel.

    I wonder what they will be doing with the shitty concrete, rather large cockup.

    To fix the dodgy concrete? Nah nowhere near that much. Was talking to the project manage the other day and it's not that big a problem in the scheme of things
